{ Random Thoughts On Poetry }


[Some poets write sonnets to die for
Other poets write haikus to live for
Some poets write gimmicks for fun
Other poets write lyrics for a Sun
Some poets like to rhyme and dine off
Other poets like to hymn and sign off
But all poets have one goal,
To write one thing and meaning another,
And, this is ironically permissible in poetry.

Poets come from diverse fields..................

[ON CLOTHES]

Poetry can be worn on a sock
as well as on a frock
Poetry hides in a hanky
as well as in a panty
Poetry can be written on a wall
as well as written in a hall
Poetry can climb a maxi
as well as lower itself in a mini
Poetry can be worn on a coat
as well as on an overcoat
Poetry is in a bra of a woman
as well as deep in her tavern.

[ON MEN]

Poetry doctors a Physician
As well as is hidden in medicines.
Poetry buries itself in a Funeral Director
As well as exposed in a Dead
Poetry can flower in a Garden
As well as in a Gardner
Poetry cuts in a Tailor
As well as in a Sailor
Poetry can fly in a Pivot
As well as in a Pilot
Poetry can set sail on a Captain
As well as on a Ship
Poetry can happen in a Train
As well as in a train driver.
Poetry paints a lonely Painter
As well as in his exquisite canvas.
Poetry is born in an alcoholics
As well is in the alcohol.
Poetry is in a smoker
As well as present in the cigarette.

[ON FEELINGS]

Poetry can happen when in Love
As well as when in Hate
Poetry creeps into an Emotion
As well as while in Motion
Poetry is in an Attire
As well as on a Satire
Poetry happens when you are Happy
As well as when you are Sad
Poetry rushes in when you are sympathetic
As well as when you are Empathetic.

[ON THINGS]

Poetry can be written on Money
As well as on Honey
Poetry can be on a Currency Note
As well as on a Fake Note
Poetry can be written in a book
As well as on a Page
Poetry can be hung on a Hat
As well as written on a Mat
Poetry can be built on Furniture
As well as on an Architecture
Poetry has time to sleep on a Bed
As well as on a Bed sheet.
Poetry can sit on legless chair
As well as eat breakfast on topless table

Alas! True poetry will always
come out of a Dreamer!
Because, Poetry is just about Anything!

As you and I once heard their monotone.
